Being gay in America is kind of like a layer of Hell wherein we are forced to live in high school for our entire lives. I am very much in agreement with David [Michael Connor in his March 23rd commentary titled "The Trouble with Happy Endings"]. No, it does NOT always "get better". In many ways I understand and sympathize with the lost souls who seek out the Ex-Gay movement because they can no longer endure our shallow and superficial "gay community" with it's body obsession, adolescent fixation with pop culture, and tendency to prize bitchiness as a virtue. While I do not believe that I can ever be "cured" of being gay, I have in recent years come to genuinely despise "gay culture". As a less than physically-perfect man in my late-30's, I am not really welcome in it. Truthfully, I have a lot of pity for gay kids because they really do not have a lot to look forward to. The bullying they get now from straights will be coming from gays later. Unless of course they grow up to be very hot.
What impressed me about this comment is how packed it is with stuff about our gay culture that should be unacceptable to us.
Let what you read here sit with you for a while. Then I encourage you to do something to help make being gay a little easier for someone else. Often, all that's needed is an attitude shift.
